Maestronet's Searchable Online Listing of Stolen Instruments
FAQ on the Stolen Instruments Registry
1. What will be included in the listing?
The Maestronet Stolen Instrument Registry is designed
to showcase stolen instruments from around the world. Its primary focus
is string instruments because of their often high value, and unique
identities. Also, the majority of Maestronet's significant traffic is
specifically related to string instruments, therefore this information
is exposed directly to those buying and selling these instruments world wide.
2. How do I list a stolen instrument?
Listing of stolen instruments is open to anyone,
including individuals, dealers and insurance brokers. We are setting
up an online listing form in the near future, in the meantime you need
to download our listing form (an Acrobat document, if you need the
Acrobat reader get it here:) fill it in and fax it to us at the number
on the form.
3. May I remain anonymous?
Yes. If you don't want your name used in the
listing, Maestronet will be the contact, and we will get in touch
with you in the event any information is reported to us.
4. How much does it cost?
The initial fee is $50.00 US per instrument and includes:
- The input and online listing of the instrument for the balance of the
calendar year in which it's first loaded. This includes the scanning and
online display of a photograph if available.
- A mention on the Maestronet Showroom page under the news category.
In November of each year a renewal fee of $25.00 is due for display for
the next year. If the renewal fee is not received by December 31 the
listing will be removed from the system.
